Jordan (Jordan) Reviews
Description:Country: Jordan / World Region: Middle East
Newest Review: ... DAY THREE After breakfast we headed out to Mount Nebo, the reported burial place of Moses. The wind on the hillside was amazing. Unfortunately, it was so strong that the dust clouds obscured the view that we would otherwise have had across the Dead Sea to Jerusalem. After exploring the church (following in the footsteps of the Pope!), we drove to Madaba, with only a quick ten minute stop ... more

You may have noticed a lack of opinions from me recently - the reason for this is I've been on holiday to Jordan. We booked this about eight months ago through Travelbag Adventures, long before the tragic events of September 11th. Although we had some doubts about travelling (and the attacks on Afghanistan started during our hoilday), I must say that the Jordanian people made us feel extremely welcome, and at NO TIME during our holiday did we feel threatened. We took a nine day holiday, at a cost of £900, which included all the major sights. Here's our experience, and evaluation of the trip DAY ONE The trip started with a Royal ...

I agree with other opinions about Jordan, in that there is a lot more ot see than just Petra. "Just" Petra is a bit harsh, since it ranks alonside the most amazing places I have ever visited and warrants at least a full day. But Jordan in general makes a very good week to ten day trip. Staying longer might let you get to know the place much better, but for a purely tourist visit, a week to ten days is fine. Here's the itinerary I did and it was very easy, quite relaxing indeed. Day 1 Look around Amman - Roman remains etc and hire your car. Day 2 Drive to Jerash early. Touring the Roman city takes most of a day, but there's ... Read the complete review

I have never, ever understood why Jordan is so underrated as a holiday resort. It has so much to offer, and yet people seem to opt for Morrocco and Algeria, and Israel for their middle-eastern holidays instead of Jordan. What is so good about a holiday to Jordan, is that whatever type of holiday you are looking for, it can be caterd for. If you like beach holidays, then there is the beautifull 'Aqaba', which has the cleanest, whitest sands i have seen , and a beautifull blue sea, and of course excellent sunbathing weather! If you're the type who likes sightseeing, then you couldnt ask for a country with a wider variety of sights. There is the unforgetable ... Read the complete review

Not far off from the monastry on Mt Nebo, I watched the sun set over the Dead Sea as the lights from Israel and the Jordan valley flickered beneath me. I can remember the colours still. I spent just under five months there, teaching in the capital Amman and exploring what ever else the country have to offer. It is an ideal holiday destination, as you can see the wonders of Petra, camp in the desert of Wadi Run, scuba dive in Aqaba, float n the dead sea and discover one of the world nest preserved Roman cities at Jerash. In addition you can meet some of the most hospitable and welcoming people to be found. The only disadvantage I found was the clash in culture, ... Read the complete review

A year old, Vinaigrette is an escape from traditional restaurants and the hefty prices of the Five Star Hotel establishments. Situated on the last floor of the AlQasr Hotel, the ambiance is quite modern complementing the eclectic cuisine. You can dine on a variety of Salads, I personally recommend the Salmon, this in addition to a large variety of fresh made juices, shakes and cocktails. Clientele vary from teens and 30 something locals to foreigners, all in all quite relaxing with Jazz tunes in the background! ... Read the complete review
